Disappointing

I have been playing this course for more a decade. A regular stop and one of my absolute favorites every year. I was thoroughly disappointed in the condition of the course. I know weather has been a bit crazy down here las few weeks, but I have been here during more inconsistent weather patterns. Greens were choppy at best. Fairways patchy. Usually you can count on the condition of both 18 hole courses to be excellent. Panther Lake is my favorite of the two 18 hole courses. Greens were beat up pretty bad, not in great shape at all. I know thy get alot of play, but they always do. I understand pandemic and weather, but there was plenty of play and not a lot of maintenance seemingly. I didnt pay a premium, but I paid enough to expect much better from OCN. This was always one I really looked forward too while I winter in central Fl. Maybe just a fluke, but I wont be back this year. Needs to be in better shape to justify the price, prestige, and drive when considering all the options within 30 miles.

Wet and Wild

It is a great course. The layout is beautiful and challenging and the course conditions were excellent. The fairways, greens, and bunkers are all very well taken care of. My only complaint is that I was unable to complete my rain due to a sudden storm. By the time I made my way to the clubhouse it was closed, so I was unable to ask for a raincheck to return to complete the back nine.

After posting my review, a member of the Panther Golf Course went out of their way to contact me and schedule a time for me to play the holes that I had missed due to rain. I really appreciate the customer service and their understanding.

Nice course I will play again

It was a blustery day, and I went out as a single, but I enjoyed the opportunity to "try again" on a few shots. Fairways were excellent and the greens firm and true.
